Re: Chocochoc's Architecture WIPs

ninopiamonte :!: :lol: :!: pocky and CTZn Hey there, well I've been facing many problems that killed my motivation lately with this scene. I won't enter the details or this post will be 1 page long and very boring. For now I'm on some business trip, so it's a bit difficult to update things, but I'l...

Re: Chocochoc's Architecture WIPs

Here yet another shot of the same scene.

There is at least two more to move to another model (I already have all the scene in mind...).

Thanks every body for your kind words ! Now for the specific answers : dcm > any speed up is welcome :p zeitmeister > I'm am currently rendering it here and there when I'm out, however, it's already been running for more than 50 hours, so I pretty much lost hope of getting a clean image. I think the...

Re: Chocochoc's Architecture WIPs

Hey Guys, I've been adding organic features to my scene recently, features I modeled in blender. First I tought about importing them into sketchup to render them without needing to leave sketchup's environment. However, since I have to apply modificators in Blender to export my models, I lose revers...

Re: Chocochoc's Architecture WIPs

Hey Pibuz ! First, it seems to me that png files can't be used to make maps with skindigo or indigo (at least it doesn't work for me). So be sure to have a jpg or something. Then you map your surface. Since Skindigo 3.0.15 you can't set up displacement in the material anymore. To add displacement yo...

Re: Chocochoc's Architecture WIPs

Hey Guys, This is not cutting edges as a visual, but since as a model it seems to be a good performance for the size / quality ratio, I thought I'd give some news with it. Obviously it's a tiled displacement map on some simple plain that is subdivided at export, so this is nothing new as a technique...

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Hey CTZn, Yeah the lumen input ? Since I only manipulated with the buggy model I couldn't try it correctly, I'll give it a try again. However, in the end I always go in the lightlayers panel during render and tweak the values like crazy to get what I want, especially the gain input :p So I can't pro...

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Ok CTZn,

Done it with blender, sent it as an obj with some old exporter that stopped being developed since 2009 and it just worked perfectly.

note this working smooth model I'm talking about is made in blender, not importer from skp then reinjected after a blender trip.

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Hoho, I see you are up early !

Well now that I look I'm quite surprised I'm still on indigo 3.0.12 :shock: I thought I remembered being on 3.0.14.

Skindigo is 3.0.15
Sketchup 8.0.4811
I use Windows 7 64 bits

I'm gonna test a blender model so we got more info.

My pleasure !

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Hey CTZn,

Nop the walls are fine, since I made a lot of 24.99 then 25 then 24.99 then 25 and it stwitched everytime (and also you can see in the sketchup viewport easily which material is applied).

So I guess maybe it's a skindigo story...lol when I think I got so mad at indigo's light management.

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Hey CTZn, thanks for your help again, well, mesh topology certainly has a role in that problem...too bad Sketchup hides this side of modelisation so much. Easiest way will be to model a similar light in blender and then try the difference, so I'm going for that. In the end I guess it's better as a w...

Re: Crazy lights behavior

Hi zeitmeister, Yes indeed :) Here are some photos + more detail : It's about the 3D model, when I physically smooth the inside edges (marked in dashed red) of the collar around the light it goes crazy. So when I sharpen them back everything works fine again..I've lost weeks trying to balance those ...

Crazy lights behavior

Hi guys, This is about lights problem. I've precisely spotted the cause, but I don't find it logic : I made some spot lights with chrome collars. When I use them the light is completely inefficient. When I delete the chrome collars around the spotlights then they become so bright I got to lower thei...
